ARROW and CONSTANTINE will have a crossover this fall as Matt Ryan is reprise his role of John Constantine on The CW drama.

CONSTANTINE was canceled after one season this May, but since the show falls into the DC universe, things worked out to bring his character to ARROW.

UPDATE: Per CW, Ryan will appear in episode 5, “Haunted,” and “John Constantine is a weather worn exorcist and expert on the supernatural and the occult.  He is a detective, magician, and a hunter of demons, and will provide critical support to Oliver (Stephen Amell) when arrows aren’t enough.

EP Marc Guggenheim says:

“We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow. Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to Arrow and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.””

Details are still being kept on the DL, but are you excited to see Constantine on ARROW?

CONSTANTINE’s Angélica Celaya on Finding Zed’s Purpose

Comments Off on CONSTANTINE’s Angélica Celaya on Finding Zed’s Purpose

constantine-featured

Since her introduction into the CONSTANTINE world, Zed has helped the team with her visions. While those visions occasionally caused her physical trauma, it took Zed collapsing at a hospital last week for the truth to come out: she has a tumor. And despite the risks of not dealing with it, Zed opted to live with it and not chance losing the gift she was given.

“We all know Zed has a brain tumor! It’s really that moment, that human moment, for Zed that we saw last week — okay, I have these visions and I have this tumor, and this tumor is what I have to suffer to do the greater good,” CONSTANTINE star Angélica Celaya (Zed) explained. “And she kept asking Manny, ‘Is this from God, or if it’s not, what is this?’ And just [him] being Manny, and being in his presence, just confirmed that it is from God, and she needs to sacrifice herself for the greater good. Zed’s mindset is suck it up, it’s showtime. She finally feels purpose.”

“She was running away from her family — which we touched a little bit through the season: her family trying to kidnap her — and anyone who is a true fan of [the] “Hellblazer” [comics] knows what that past is, and that her father is the leader of the cult, and basically wants to kidnap her,” she continued. “Zed does not want that purpose. She wants her own purpose, her own journey, her own destiny. And she finally found it last episode, saying, ‘This is what I have to do, I know exactly what I’m doing now.’ That’s Zed’s mindset: time to rock and roll, baby.

While Zed may have found her zen with the tumor, the reveal initially threw Celaya.

CONSTANTINE is introducing Anne Marie, a woman from John Constantine’s past, in tonight’s brand new episode, and according to series star Matt Ryan (Constantine), it kicks off one of their best arcs.

“In episodes 8 and 9, we’re introduced to Anne Marie, who is from the Newcastle crew,” Ryan previewed to reporters on the show’s set last month. “They’re my favorite episodes so far. They have the right balance of it being really dark and humorous at the same time. For the show, it’s imperative it’s rooted in that really dark, twisted world, but at the same time John can say something completely and utterly irrelevant in the middle of it.”

Comments Off on CONSTANTINE Will Have a Short First Season

constantine-thumbCONSTANTINE’s first season will only be 13 episodes, a source has confirmed to Give Me My Remote. The series — which is based off the DC Comics series, “Hellblazer,” and is currently in production of its 13th episode — is still in contention for a second season pick-up. (And CONSTANTINE will remain in its Fridays-at-10 PM slot for the rest of its first season.)

Deadline was first to report the news.

Are you sad CONSTANTINE’s first season will be a short one?

Comments Off on CONSTANTINE: Matt Ryan, Angélica Celaya, and Charles Halford Tease the Arrival of Jim Corrigan and Return of Papa Midnite

constantine-thumbThe CONSTANTINE crew will be introduced to a familiar face from the comics in this week’s brand new episode: Jim Corrigan. And, unfortunately for Jim, the initial interactions aren’t wildly positive.

“John and Jim cross paths on a case,” CONSTANTINE star Matt Ryan (John) teased to reporters on the show’s Atlanta set. “But what’s interesting is Jim is introduced to this world, which he doesn’t believe — he thinks, what the fuck is this supernatural stuff? There’s a great line where he says, how do you know this is real? What’s interesting about their relationship is they want the same thing, ultimately, but they’re coming at it from different angles, and they’re willing to sacrifice different parts of themselves. And ultimately, Corrigan wants justice, but that comes from a form of rage, a form of anger. With John, it’s complicated. There’s those things as well, but there’s a lot of other stuff as well. I think Jim’s world is very much based in the real world, and John, obviously, knows about the world beyond ours, so there’s other levels…and John uses his humor as a defense mechanism; he’s become good at hiding it. Whereas Corrigan, you can see more on the surface, he’s a little more scarred. But I think John’s problems are more deeper rooted…but he hides them well, I think.”

And because John doesn’t immediately click with Jim, Chas finds himself on guard around the newbie, too.

CONSTANTINE star Matt Ryan is taking on an established role by playing the show’s lead John Constantine (in addition to the “Hellblazer” comic book series, there was a 2005 film starring Keanu Reeves), and while he conceded while talking to press at New York Comic Con that there’s “a lot of pressure,” he also noted “you can’t really think about it too much, because it can get in the way [of playing the character].”

Comments Off on CONSTANTINE: David S. Goyer on the New NBC Series

CONSTANTINE is the latest DC Comics character to be adapted into a television series (in this case, from the comic book series, “Hellblazer”), but this one is a bit more grounded than many of the others.

And while the show is only making its debut on Friday, it’s already had some changes that have made headlines: original female lead, Lucy Griffiths (Liv) exited the series in July, and post-pilot, a new female lead, Angélica Celaya (Zed), will go toe-to-toe with Constantine.

At New York Comic Con, CONSTANTINE executive producer David S. Goyer spoke with reporters about the changes the show underwent, what other DC universe characters might pop up in the show, and more…
